FAYETTEVILLE - Former Arkansas baseball standout James McCann has been added to the United States roster for the Pan Am Games, as announced by USA Baseball.

McCann was selected to replace the injured Travis d'Arnaud. McCann becomes the second former Razorback on the team, joining Drew Smyly.

The United States begins play in the Pan Am Games on October 20 against the Dominican Republic. The U.S. is also scheduled to play Panama on October 21 and Mexico on October 22 in the opening round of games.

A three-year letterwinner at Arkansas, McCann played in 169 games, including 152 starts, during his collegiate career. A second round draft pick of the Detroit Tigers in the 2011 MLB Draft, McCann had a .284 career batting average with 16 homers and 83 RBI. He put together his best season in 2011, hitting .306 with six homers and 38 RBI. The 2011 SEC Baseball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, McCann ranked second on the team with 14 doubles, drew a team-high 24 walks and also stole 11 bases. McCann had 15 multi-hit games and 11 multi-RBI games as well. One of 13 semifinalists for the Johnny Bench Award, McCann finished the year with a .992 fielding percentage, committing just four errors on the season and throwing out 20 would-be base stealers.

McCann joins Smyly on the U.S. team, which is currently playing in the IBAF Baseball World Cup. Smyly has started one game for the United States and earned the win against Greece. Smyly threw six shutout innings, striking out seven and allowing just two hits.
